Tarot of the Sidhe by the delightfully creative Emily Carding, today's card is titled Warrior Queen, traditionally the Queen of Wands.
A female figure stands on a rock in the centre of a bay, around her the water is tinted red and orange, mirroring the energy that streams off this Warrior Queen. Birds seem to emanate from her, flying off in all directions, and her dress dances about her like red streamers in the wind. She appears to be blindfolded, yet in touch with everything through the energy that she spreads around her, and through the birds who can act as her eyes, seeing with perspective and going everywhere and anywhere.
This card is subtitled the Gift of Charm. Perhaps because she can charm the very birds from the skies :-) She certainly radiates warmth and vitality, and the birds as messengers and communicators suggest she speaks lyrically, melodically.
I am thankful for the strong, communicative women in my life.
I am grateful for feeling energetic and vital.
I am thankful for my ability to communicate with others.
